While LegalLee Blonde is primarily a business casual / “wear to work” inspiration style blog, I do like to show weekend outfits every now and then (like my go-to summer outfit here). I could not resist showing you this weekend look as this may be my favourite dress ever. ever, ever.

I wore this outfit this past weekend to the Deighton Cup; a horse racing event here in Vancouver. It was a really fun event and I felt perfectly southern in this dress & hat combo. If you look closely you can see that the dress pattern is a whole bunch of Mint Julep cups – so perfect for our version of the Kentucky Derby!


I hope you all had a great weekend as well and are ready to take on another work week! Be sure to follow me on instagram to see my work outfit for today – and get some work outfit inspiration on your Monday morning!

    You look so chic and beautiful! Love the little bow on the dress and the fact that it has mint juleps on it!! Your hat pulls this whole look together perfectly for the races!
